Manasseh Azure, a freelance journalist, who is known for his controversial investigative and anti-corruption reports that have caused a national uproar and also land some government officials in prison, has shown his disgust at how the President, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo is handling the current issues of the nation, most especially, the covid-19 pandemic.
In a post on his page, he expressed how the police laid an embargo on the #FixTheCountry demo laying emphasis on the covid-19 restrictions.
Meanwhile, the President lined up students in their numbers to usher him into communities and towns in the Northern region in the midst of the deadliest variant of the virus.
It is so shocking how the President could not defend the nation against US$170 million judgement debt, because, he claimed covid-19 and the elections had impeded their work.
The post read:
“The last time I said the president had acted irresponsibly, people said I shouldn’t have written that about the president. This time, I won’t say he has acted irresponsibly. I want you to help me describe this.
1. The police say #FixTheCountry protesters cannot march because of Covid-19 restrictions.
2. The deadliest variant of the virus is said to have made it to Ghana and health authorities are saying we should intensify the safety protocols.
3. The President is touring the northern part of the country and students are lined up in their numbers to usher him into communities and towns.
4. Apart from the shady procurements that have enriched many because of Covid-19, we are learning that President Akufo-Addo’s government could not defend the nation against US$170 million judgment debt because they claimed Covid-19 and the elections had impeded their work.
5. Has Covid-19 not punished us enough to enable the President to begin to show some leadership? After the disregard for protocols during the elections, the East Legon and parties in December 2020, Sir John’s funeral, the citizens have concerns raised over the behaviour of our leaders. So won’t the president and his people listen?
6. How do we appropriately describe this behaviour?”
